myTEAM TRIUMPH Ironman Boulder
Follow Team Ian as they conquer one of human-kinds most impressive feats of endurance. This is Captain Ian’s first full Ironman event and you can be a part of his incredible journey. His Angel, Christian Jensen – Executive Director of myTEAM TRIUMPH-WI, has helped take Captain Mary through an Ironman in Wisconsin, but now he gets to swim, bike and run with a breath-taking view of the majestic Rocky Mountains.
Nestled at the foot of the imposing Flatirons, Boulder, Colorado is already a wildly popular home-base and vacation destination for world-class triathletes. The city's health-conscious culture, near-perfect weather and breathtaking natural environment mean it’s destined to be an instant favorite on the IRONMAN circuit.
The race will start at the Boulder Reservoir with a single loop 2.4-mile swim. Once finished in the water, the first transition will start the athletes on a beautiful 112-mile one-loop bike course in the city's vast open space. The bike will loop around Carter Lake and along the eastern plains of the Front Range before ending downtown at Boulder High School.
The two-loop run course is almost entirely on Boulder Creek Trail, winding along the creek and through city parks. Spectators will have multiple opportunities to cheer on the athletes and the last few steps of the day will take athletes up Pearl Street for a triumphant finish.
